Eyewitness: Summertime in Kuopio, Eastern Finland

Perhaps you still remember the photos of Kuopio, a city in the Finnish Lake District, that we published a few months ago when it was freezing cold and the whole place was covered in snow. Now Crossing the Baltic’s Finland correspondent Leena-Mari Laukkanen has returned with gorgeous shots of the first days of summer. The place looks so beautiful that you immediately want to embark on a Finnish summer holiday.
Please see for yourself…

  1. Kuopio is small nice town indeed. I love those photos by Leena-Mari, because they present our landscape as it is.

    What about:

    When in Kuopio, it is a must.

    Happy blogging!

    1. Thank you!

      Our Crossing the Baltic’s team is very fond of Kuopio and the Finnish Lake District in general.
